Opening Doors & Minds?

The Manufacturing Day Mission

Manufacturing Day gives manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t. By working together during and after MFG DAY, manufacturers will begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing, and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry.

What is Manufacturing Day?

First held in 2012 and observed annually on the first Friday of each October, National Manufacturing Day brings together manufacturers, educational institutions and companies across the country to expose students, teachers, parents and community leaders to the opportunity and potential of manufacturing careers.

On MFG Day, Washington manufacturers open their doors and take up the important work of inspiring our young people to pursue careers in manufacturing and engineering. Today’s science, technology, engineering, and math graduates will power the next chapter of American production and innovation, and harnessing their potential is an economic imperative.

Impact Washington supports MFG Day and celebrates manufacturers who unlock new technologies that grow our economy, create jobs through entrepreneurship, and help revitalize American manufacturing.
